Man 'breaks into church to watch porn'
Police have arrested a man who allegedly broke into an Iwoa church before watching pornography in its basement.
Charles E. Bentley, 55, of Grand Ave. is being held at Story County Jail on a $10,000 (£6,640) bond on a charge of second-degree burglary after the incident, the Ames Tribune reports.
He is accused of breaking into the Clark Avenue church across the road from the police station, gathering a number of items and going into the basement.
Bentley was found at 7am last Friday morning when employees of the Ames Community Preschool turned up for work.
Commander Mike Brennan of the Ames Police Department said: "He kind of made himself at home."

He is believed to have used the TV to watch pornographic movies found on his person when he was arrested.
